ABBA releases the Dancing Queen in me
There are only a few artistes whose music lasts decades and remain relevant to younger audiences. ABBA, Aerosmith, Arctic Monkeys, David Bowie, Madonna, Michael Jackson, Nirwana, U2 are some of my all time favourites. My current favourite of all favourites, Coldplay, will definitely be relevant in the next few decades.
I couldn't get my hands on Coldplay tickets when they performed in Malaysia recently but I'm happy to know that I would be able to sing and dance to ABBA famed for hits such as "Money Money Money", "Knowing Me Knowing You" and "Dancing Queen" when the tribute band from Sweden performs here in September.
AC Music Entertainment will bring you the international hit tribute musical Arrival from Sweden – The Music of ABBA. Arrival from Sweden, is a renowned ABBA tribute band, and will perform their greatest hits and a previously unreleased song “Just a Notion”, directly from Björn Ulvaeus and Benny Andersson of ABBA. This tribute show debuted in 1995 and has been attended by over a million people, globally.
This 12-piece band (including many original members of ABBA's band) will take you back to the ‘70s as they re-create the appearance of the original stars that defined pop music. Authentic costumes, entrancing dance numbers, impeccable harmonies all come together to create the ABBA experience, live on stage.
Arrival From Sweden was founded in 1995 in Gothenburg, Sweden by Vicky Zetterberg. On stage she takes on the role of Anni-Frid Lyngstad (Frida) and her vocals partner, six-foot tall blonde Jenny Gustafsson taking on the role of Agnetha Faltskog. Arrival from Sweden's tongue-in-cheek retrospect of supergroup, ABBA includes the four main band members, plus six side musicians, three female back-up singers.
Fans of the band in Malaysia will get to relive the golden days with the favorite hits like Money Money Money, SOS and even Super Trouper soon! Reminisce the days of the 70s as you enjoy Arrival from Sweden – The Music of ABBA.
If you haven't heard about Arrival from Sweden, here are some reviews:
"Abba, re-lived “FOR Abba fans, this show band was the real McCoy. They sang, danced and looked like the original Abba in the ‘70s, show band Arrival From Sweden delivered a stellar performance that was a befitting tribute recently The two lead singers were at their best as their voices sounded just like Abba. Their voices were pitch-perfect as they hit the high notes effortlessly.”
The Star, Malaysia NO 1 Newspaper, January 1, 2011
"What a treat for ABBA’s fans to relive the ageless music of ABBA, which was performed by tribute band Arrival from Sweden to a packed house at the Arena of Stars in Genting Highlands in Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia on 25 and 26 December 2010. As the saying goes, nothing beats the original but if you can’t get the original, the second best will do. Arrival just proved that point."
